 Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Soul QB Dan Raudabaugh has been
 awarded the Russell Athletic Offensive Player of the Week, while Arizona
 Rattlers DB Arkeith Brown has been named the Riddell Defensive Player of the
 Week and San Jose SaberCats WR Fred Williams has been named JLS Ironman of the
 Week for Week 17 of the 2012 AFL season. In addition to these awards, the AFL
 is also awarding the Cutters Catch of the Week, Spalding Highlight of the Week
 and the AFL Playmaker of the Week. San Jose SaberCats OL Jasper Harvey was
 awarded the Cutters Catch of the Week, while San Antonio Talons WR Jomo Wilson
 earned the Spalding Highlight of the Week. Philadelphia Soul WR Tiger Jones and
 Cleveland Gladiators DB Joe Phinisee have been named Co-AFL Playmakers of the
 Week.
 
 RUSSELL ATHLETIC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
 
 Raudabaugh (6-3, 220, Miami Ohio) set multiple franchise passing records in
 Philadelphia's 83-79 victory over Tampa Bay. His 415 passing yards and 11
 passing touchdowns represent new single-game franchise records, while his
 season-total of 4,499 yards broke Tony Graziani's franchise record, set in
 2005. Raudabaugh also became the second quarterback this season to eclipse the
 100-touchdown plateau. This is Raudabaugh's second Offensive Player of the Week
 honor this season.
 
 RIDDELL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
 
 Brown (6-1, 195, Texas A&M) had 5.5 tackles and three interceptions in
 Arizona's win over the Spokane Shock in Week 17. In the second quarter, Brown
 wrestled the ball away from a Spokane receiver and returned it 56 yards for a
 touchdown. He is the first Arizona player since 2002 to record three
 interceptions in one game.
 
 JLS IRONMAN OF THE WEEK
 
 Williams (6-0, 195, St. Cloud State) caught 11 passes for 164 yards and three
 touchdowns during the SaberCats road win over the Rush in Week 17. He also
 added five kick returns for 100 yards, including a 57-yard kick return
 touchdown, and rushed twice for five yards and a score. Williams finished with
 five total touchdowns scored three different ways. He will be awarded a
 timepiece crafted by JLS for his efforts.
 
 CUTTERS CATCH OF THE WEEK
 
 Harvey (6-3, 315, San Diego State) hauled in a tipped pass for a touchdown to
 close out the first half of the SaberCats 75-61 victory over Chicago in Week
 17. Deep in Rush territory, San Jose quarterback Mark Grieb lofted a pass into
 a crowd of players, who batted the ball around before it fell into Harvey's
 hands for a score. He will be awarded a Cutters hat and shirt for his efforts.
 
 AFL PLAYMAKER OF THE WEEK
 
 Jones (5-11, 195, Louisville) and Phinisee (5-10, 195, Walsh) have been named
 Co-AFL Playmakers of the Week for their Week 17 heroics. Jones recorded 12
 catches for 204 yards and six touchdowns. His 204 receiving yards represent a
 single-game franchise record, while his six touchdowns ties the team's best
 single-game mark. He also became the first player in AFL history with back-to-
 back 2,000-yard receiving seasons in the game. Phinisee, meanwhile, tallied six
 tackles, three pass breakups, two turnovers and a score in Cleveland's lopsided
 victory over the Milwaukee Mustangs. He leads the team with three defensive
 touchdowns on the season.
 
 SPALDING HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK
 
 Wilson (6-0, 205, Eastern Oregon) set the tone for the San Antonio Talons in
 Week 18 by returning the opening kickoff 56 yards for a score. He finished the
